April Fools to my family!!

So.. I made an April Fools breakfast for my kids... Wanna see it?

I got the recipes from Disney's Family Fun

For the Grilled Cheese:

  • Pound cake (I used the frozen Sara Lee)
  • 1 cup white frosting (canned is just fine)
  • Yellow and red food coloring
  • Cut the pound cake into bread-like slices and toast them in a toaster oven just until they turn golden brown. Once they've cooled for a few minutes, stack two slices for each sandwich and cut the stack in half diagonally (slicing the sandwich before you fill it makes for fewer crumbs).

    Now tint the frosting by stirring in a few drops of yellow and red food coloring (more yellow than red) to get a shade of orange that resembles American cheese.

    Carefully spread frosting between the slices of each half sandwich. If you mound the frosting on one slice, then top it with the other and gently press down, the frosting will ooze out a bit and look all the more like melted cheese. Makes one sandwich.

    For the fakin': (bacon)

    1) Remove the wrapping from a square caramel and a Tootsie Roll Midgee. Microwave the candies for 4 seconds to make them soft. Use your thumb and forefinger to slightly flatten each candy piece, then press them together.

    2) Halve the candy, then stack and press the pieces into alternating layers.

    3) Slice a 1/4-inch-wide piece from the stack. Pinch and stretch the piece lengthwise into a flat bacon strip, then cut it in half. Add ripples to each half by gently bending the edges. Makes 3 strips (6 pieces).

    Now I can't wait for dinner!!
